Gamasutra: Not much more than a bunch of company names in this news report, but I’m happy to hear somebody is committed to the Grandia franchise – even if it means yet another MMO hitting a saturated market.

Game Politics: The CEO of the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) hates them damn pirates and blames them for everything. Luckily, DRM is here to keep us safe (I am being sarcastic)!
